avocado oil

Firstly, avocado oil is not a significant source of protein. It is an oil after all and the whole purpose of extracting an oil is the removal of proteins, carbohydrates and any other substances that aren’t fat based. Take a look at the nutritional information on a bottle of it and you will usually see the protein content listed as zero.

While fresh avocados are a great source of vitamins and minerals, the oil itself does not contain the same sort of broad spectrum of these nutrients.

Even cold pressed avocado oil, with its gentle manufacturing process, is still created by separating the oil from the rest of the pulp. Obviously, many water soluble vitamins like vitamins C and the B vitamins will be largely removed. Fat soluble vitamins on the other hand, and one in particular as we shall see, are concentrated instead.

Finally, while it does contain some omega-3 alpha linolenic fatty acids, the amount is relatively small (taking a good fish oil or using flaxseed oil on your hair is your best bet here). Far more important, from a hair benefits point of view, is the extremely high content of monounsaturated fatty acids in avocado oil.

Avocado Oil Hair Growth Nutrients

The monounsaturated fatty acid content in avocado oil is even higher than extra virgin olive oil and is one of the main reasons it is so good for your hair. Many people’s hair is dry, damaged and weak from poor nutrition, heat styling, chemical treatments and environmental pollution. Monounsaturated fats, when applied directly in a hair mask, can moisturize, nourish and strengthen hair strands, improving the way they look and protecting them from damage.

Massaging avocado oil into your scalp also stimulates blood flow to your hair follicles. With improved blood flow and circulation to the scalp, more nutrients can reach the follicles to stimulate new growth and healthier hair in general.

Finally, and perhaps most beneficially for hair care, its monounsaturated fatty acids, phytosterols and high levels of antioxidants like vitamin E, are well absorbed into our scalp and hair shafts. This not only has a highly moisturizing and protective effect against environmental stressors and damage, it may also stimulate new growth and help unclog blocked follicles.

The combination of antioxidant vitamin E, moisturizing plants sterols and the rich levels of monounsaturated fatty acids in avocado oil, provides three different nutrients that have been individually recommended for stimulating hair growth, in one simple, highly absorbable topical treatment.

While there are no clinical trials I’m aware of (and are unlikely to be since pharmaceutical companies can’t patent natural treatments), many people report positive results with using avocado oil for hair growth.

3 Ways to Use Avocado Oil for Better Hair

Applying a good cold pressed avocado oil to your hair will improve its appearance and texture while strengthening and moisturizing the strands. See the page on treatments for some simple homemade ideas that are likely to be far more effective than your expensive store bought conditioners.

Massaging avocado oil into your scalp stimulates circulation and allows it to penetrate in deeply, providing beneficial nutrients, unclogging blocked follicles and, it is reported for many people, stimulating new growth.

Last but not least, use the oil for healthier cooking and as a recipe addition or salad dressing. Good nutrition on the inside can be just as important for strong and healthy hair in the long run.

Avocado Oil For Your Hair:
Many of us already know this but I must reiterate this point.  Avocado oil is great overall for your hair and specifically for your scalp.  The oil boost blood circulation in your scalp which we all know stimulates growth.  Also, its properties inhibit flaking and dryness in your scalp which also helps stimulate growth by aiding to keep the follicles clear of obstructions.  The fact that avocado oil is rich in vitamin E and the B Vitamins lends to the fact that avocado oil strengthens your hair.  Overall, avocado oil is a great carrier oil to use when you’re doing your daily scalp massages.

Here are some great avocado hair treatment ideas for your hair:

Avocado Oil Hair Treatment Idea #1: 

Hot Oil Treatment: 

Blend three to five tablespoons of avocado oil (depending on length of your hair) with three to five tablespoons of extra virgin coconut oil and heat them in a saucepan on a very low heat until warmed to a comfortable temperature.

If you have it, you can add a few drops of rosemary essential oil and mix it in. Other essential oils like lavender or sandalwood can also be used, but rosemary oil is known to be especially good for the hair and scalp.

Apply the oil to freshly washed hair and gently massage it in. Cover with a shower cap, or ideally wrap it in a very warm towel you don’t mind washing and leave for fifteen to twenty minutes. Wash out as normal.

Avocado Oil Hair Treatment Idea #2: 

Whisk up two tablespoons of avocado oil, two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, 1 tablespoon of honey and 3 tablespoons of natural yogurt (the real yogurt, not the sugary ‘fruit’ stuff).

Smooth all over damp hair, cover with a shower cap and leave for 15 to 20 minutes. Wash out thoroughly, preferably with a chemical free shampoo, but as with the hot oil treatment, you won’t need any store bought conditioner after this treatment has done its work.

Avocado Oil Hair Treatment Idea #3: 

Add a tablespoon of avocado oil to your regular conditioner and rinse out as normal.

Avocado Hair Treatment Idea #1: 

 

Using an avocado conditioner promotes hair that feels soft and is more elastic. The high-fat content of avocados makes hair less dry and prone to breakage. After washing your hair with shampoo, apply the avocado conditioner and leave for five to 10 minutes before rinsing with warm water. Make your own avocado conditioner by mashing avocados into a paste and adding enough water to make a paste-like solution.
Avocado Hair Treatment Idea #2: 
To make a moisturizing mask, mash an avocado into paste, then mix it with 1/4 cup of steel-cut or rolled oats. Combine the paste with 1/8 to 1/4 cup of olive oil, depending on your hair’s dryness. Add 1 cup of milk and stir well. Smooth the mixture over your hair; wait for 30 minutes and rinse. To make a detangling conditioner, put 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1/2 cup of shea butter, 2 tablespoons of apple-cider vinegar and one sliced avocado in a blender. Blend until smooth, apply to hair and wait for 30 minutes. Rinse well for soft, shiny locks.
Avocado Hair Treatment Idea #3: 

Combine one chopped avocado and one egg yoke in a bowl. Add enough water to make a workable paste. Apply the mixture to damp hair and massage into the hair and scalp. Pile hair on top of your head and leave for 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water.

Avocado Oil For Your Skin:
The benefits of avocado oil for your skin is where this carrier oil really shines.  In fact, it seems as though the list of benefits of avocado oil for your skin doesn’t end.  Avocado oil is a great oil for slowing the aging process as it stimulates collagen production while increasing the skins elasticity.  The fact that avocado oil stimulates collagen production make it great for heading off those fine lines that tend to pop up around the eyes. It also slows down the emergence of “age spots” on the skin.  Also,  avocado oil is a natural moisturizer for your skin, nourishing dehydrated skin while softening the skin as well.

The anti-inflammatory benefits of avocado oil relieves itchiness as well as treating common ailments like eczema and psoriasis.  Avocado oil is a natural UV protectant that helps not only prevent sunburn but helps you heal from it when you are unlucky enough to enjoy the summer time sun a little too much.

One common thing avocado oil is used for which many people overlook is the fact that it acts a great makeup remover.  So when you’re looking for a natural alternative for your hair and skin care products,   definitely consider avocado oil.

 

Avocado oil is one of the better oils to use on our natural hair since it contains a high amount (approximately 72%) of monounsaturated fatty acids – which is higher than most other oils, including coconut and grapeseed.  Want to know how to use it?  Here are 12 ways:

1. To enhance a moisturizer. Monounsaturated oils may readily penetrate into the hair strand [1].  Additionally, oils with a slight polarity tend to have an affinity for the cortex [2].  Because avocado oil has these two characteristics, it may easily penetrate into the cortex of the hair strand, which few oils can do.  Thus, it has the potential to enhance your current moisturizer.  Try mixing the oil with your store-bought product or into your homemade whipped butter.

2. As a carrier oil.  Avocado oil penetrates the skin fairly easily when compared to some oils, such as olive or almond [3].  It is also moderately low on the comedogenic scale (i.e., not as clogging as some other oils such as coconut).  Because of these qualities, it can make a great carrier oil for your essential oils.

3. To moisturize your scalp.  Avocado oil is nothing like other oils which leave a greasy film on the surface of the skin.  It readily melts into the epidermis, thus making it a useful option for moisturizing a dry scalp.

4. To add slip to a deep conditioner.  Not all deep conditioners have a natural slip and this can be annoying for some naturals.  Try adding avocado oil, which has just the right consistency to create the lubrication you need.  Additionally, since avocado oil might readily penetrate into the hair shaft, you may have an added bonus of increased elasticity!
